    Pat, Ann and I went to Louisville to another play. Somebody in the ticket office really messed up this year. We had no play in January, which was no real hardship, considering the weather. But we had two plays scheduled on consecutive Saturdays in February. It was a good drama and very well done, but I’m just about all cultured out at the moment.

  • When Gary Duvall reminisces about his childhood, one thing is evident: Parents considered hard work essential for children to develop character and to lay the foundation for responsible adulthood.
    Recalling working in tobacco fields when he was only 8, Gary didn’t consider that fact to be unusual, nor did his parents think the work too difficult. That was life in Owen County, and had been so since the first settlers arrived. Everyone, including the very young, contributed to the success of the family unit.

  • Elk Lick Baptist

    We were all created in the image of God. Adam and Eve lived in paradise and were sinless.
    The tempter came to Eve and she gave to Adam. They gave in to sin for forbidden fruit and to know good and evil.
    They were naked and ashamed and hid from God. God asked him where aren’t thou? Man turned from God and caused him to judge us.
